I gave a overall rating of very good because the hotel was just that very good. The rooms were nice and clean with a view of the ocean which was great to sit down and have a cup of coffee in the morning. Excellent A/C unit. I didn't like the schedules of the maid service as they would come at... More

We stayed in an ocean view room on the top floor. It was awesome! The place was extremely convenient to all things on Waikiki beach. The property was great too with the small store, restaurant, and beach rentals. We had an awesome time and hope to return again.

I will echo the majority of the reviews you see here -- great military rates for the location, ocean view from the room was postcard-perfect, amenities are good,... We took advantage of the umbrella/chairs rental on the beach and enjoyed our days in the sun. Parking at $7 per day is a bargain for the area. Really enjoyed the special... More

This was the perfect place to stay in Waikiki . Ocean front and lots of beautiful garden, picnic, and recreational areas. As other views state there are eligibility requirements. Very good luau food and show. Would highly recommend this property to anyone meeting eligibility requirements . Only negative was kid's pool has restrictions on what kids may do ( no... More

My husband is a civilian employee so we were able to stay at the Hale Koa for three nights before heading to the Big Island. We had a lovely partial ocean view room (501 in the Ilima Tower). This room was lovely. It is only corner of the building so at the end of hallway. It only shares one wall... More

My family attended the Luau at the Hale Koa with my father who is a retired Colonel in the USAF. My children are 15, 14, and 11. We arrived at 530pm and enjoyed the pre-luau activities which included making a lei bracelets and other fun activities that were entertaining for the children. We had an assigned table and enjoyed three... More

I had the perfect view of the beach and the rainbows everyday from my room! We even grilled food on the beach two of the days we were there. We were able to purchase tickets to local attractions tax free! Everyone was helpful. Even the food and drinks at the snack bar was delicious! I really enjoyed the relaxing massage.... More

You must be active military or meet certain other requirements to hang loose at this popular place on Waikiki Beach. Check your eligibility to rent a room there before you get too excited. Located on Fort DeRussy, the hotel is surrounded by lush, green open space. The price is cheaper than many Honolulu/Waikiki crash pads and the Hale Koa features... More

We have a lot of military in our family so we were able to book multiple rooms for everyone for a family reunion. It was a great choice and we had a wonderful time. I do have some relatively mild criticisms that prevent me from giving the hotel an overall excellent rating. For some reason (probably a marketing decision because... More

This hotel is beautiful and has all you will ever need! The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. The food was excellent. The location is perfect. There are lots of activities on the premises. We went to the luau. For what you enjoyed, the luau was a great deal! The music, food, and performances (from coconut demonstration, to dances, to... More
